To enable the silent installer on Windows, follow these steps:

  1. Install the copy of QuarkXPress on a network. The installer will make a setup.xml and Silent.bat file in the QuarkXPress folder.

  2. Open the Silent.bat file in a text editor and ensure that the first line of the silent.bat is '<path of setup.exe>' /s /v'/qn'.

  3. To enable silent installer on Windows, copy the two files to the next system and disable any virus protection software on your system.

  4. Double-click on the silent.bat file--a console window will appear. It displays the path where the installer is located and closes when the installer is complete.

Useful for:

  • Installing QuarkXPress on multiple machines using a disk imaging or silent installation software

  • Installing or modifying files within the QuarkXPress folder without interfering with site workflow.

  • Managing QuarkXPress upgrades in large sites
